Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

i have a suse version of linux and the problem is i don't know how to mount an usb flash disk.
so our friend bore from MA advice me to log in as root and then tape fdsik you will notice something like that
so then when i make a folder in the /mnt
i called it memcard
and then i mount my usb disk
by taping this
mount /mnt/sda2 /mnt/memcard
and when i enter the /mnt/memcard
i notice that there is a copy of my linux :Ripper_Is_Here:
î make this
$ cd /mnt/memcard
/bin /mnt /usr /tmp ....... ( and the other linux folder )
so i got a little bit angry and i decided to remove this folder( i mean the memcard folder)
i did this
rm -r -d /mnt/memcard
guess what happen next
my linux has been crashed
when i tape ls it gives me nothing
even when i taped halt .it doesn't even shut down
and when i forced the shut down by pressing the shut down button(i use VMWARE so it's equivalent to close the session)
and then when start back the linux it says can't load linux and stoped
as a conclusion i advice all the linux user to not enter your session as root
you may crash your system
now i have a project to made with linux and how can i do it?
you see ! xp is more powerfull than linux because even you are a root on xp OS you don't have the permission to make such a thing so your system fall down .
that's one of the weakness of linux !
BE AWARE so !!!
heh, if one goes rooting around XP's hive, deleting keys at random, I'm sure that you can get XP to crash...
Try going into the Windows folder and deleting random files, I'm sure that will be the same affect. One click and delete...now that's easy to foobar your system!
I suggest that you resintall Linux and find yourself a good man.
man pages that is... as a newbie I would suggest:
1. man rm or any other command. Understand not only what you are doing but why.
2. searching the threads of LQ. I could have sworn with few posts we have on here and the very few users that are on, that 1 person might have gone through the same questions....
3.google "Creating Mount Points" + SUSE
4. sudo is better at first than loging in as root.
5. The L in Linux stands for Learning, embrace it.
there you go at least i replied with a helpfull link i rellay dident need to as you could have done this your self. With linux you have to want to help your self rather then letting somone tell you how to do it.
It does but the OP is using VMware.
I have had this problem before myself with a suse virtual machine and I'm sure there is a Usb controller setting in VMware, did you try this before you started stamping your feet
instead of doing all that help me when i can find a cygwin linux because i have a lot of work with linux
Have you tried any of the suggestions that were given in the two threads you created for this problem? And if so, what were your results? Most of the folks here are more then willing to help, assuming you give some basic info and not bad talk Linux...

Well... the basic difference is that in XP you never you who is the boss, the Windows installation or the admin. I know cases where I tried to do something in Windows as administrator, which were fully legitimate, but prohibited by Windows. It costed me a huge amount of work to get that right.
And BTW, try to find out the difference between taping and typing. Even if English is not you mother language, trying to use the correct spelling is nice for those who try to help you. After all not all effort is to be done by others.
